That’s what happened to me this morning. I couldn’t sleep, so I wanted to get up, be productive, and be superwoman. But I wasn’t.
I did get up. I gathered my Bible and all I needed to get ahead of the day. I wanted to write a Bible study lesson for next week to give to the ladies tonight. At least that was the plan. I also hoped to have a mountain top eureka experience to share with you on this blog today. But I didn’t.
Neither the study nor the mountain top were accomplished, but one wonderful thing was.
Time in silence with Him.
Time. With. Him.
It’s been a stressful week. Nothing has gone according to plan and there seems to be more to get done than hours in the day. Some stress I’m putting on myself; I know.
But He knows all this, so I believe He woke me up to have me all to Himself because He wanted to give me His peace before the craziness began.
He loves us.
Maybe the next time He wakes you before your alarm clock does, it will help you to roll out of your warm bed if you know He wants to spend extra time with you. No agenda. No goals.
Just you and Jesus.
Much grace and peace,
